WANTED: Lemon grass

kimka(Zone 6B)April 23, 2010

Anybody have a start or a division of Lemon grass. I want to try it in pot on the deck as a mosquito repellent as well as harvest a little.

If you are coming to the MAG swap on May 8, I could get it there. If not we could get together some other time.

My email is jkkaplan"at"erols.com.

For trade I've got


Spiderwort (most likely z blue)

Lemon balm (warning invasive, best as a pot plant)

Obedient plant (pink blooming, can be invasive)

From this year's winter sowing

Calendula neon

Thimble flower (blue)

Ditch lilies

Kim, I bought some lemongrass at an Asian grocery, stuck it in water until it made roots, and then potted it up. Super easy. Keep it well-watered and fed, and count on putting it into a much bigger pot in a very short time.
